Christmas 2008

My daughter was is town. She had returned with my after the wedding in Texas. We went late afternoon to a get together at my nephew Norman’s open house. There we gave presents to his two twin 3 year old sons. They were so excited to see everyone and open their gifts! Always fun to see young ones so excited. And did they make out! We enjoyed hor dorse and visiting.

Then, we headed home for our family dinner. My son and his dog joined us. We had a fun time, eating, visiting and taking some fun photos! He joined us again in the morning for brunch and presents.

Later, I was not feeling well ( too much rich food and drink). So my daughter went alone to my niece’s house to visit and give gifts to her two youngest children. I was very sad that I was not able to see their sweet faces. I hope to visit later this week.

So another Christmas goes by, 14 now without my late husband. I’ve learned to appreciate the little things and not except...and I know that nothing stays the same. Life goes quickly so enjoy each day, your family, friends, health, the beauty of nature, all music and have as much fun as you can!

thought of the day: "If you don't have a sense of humor, you probably don't have any sense at all."

It's is really lovely to have a mother who is always there for surprises, for fun, for advises and etc. I lost my mom at 18 and my dad 1t 19. I finish my studies with the help of my father's sister. I am now 32, married,no kids yet.

May you have a gracefilled new year!!!

Hello, I never thought you'd spend time giving a reply. Thank you very much! I am too happy : )to hear from you. I have just started blogging and I find it interesting than any other, meeting new friends and others. Although I'm not really that good in words I'd still try.
